Pentagon paid for patriotism at NFL games
 
By Jon Rappoport
 
If politics is the last refuge of scoundrels, as the old saying goes, then constant calls for Unity is the last refuge of politicians.
 
The hits keep coming in the farce called NFL football.
 
"We're all in this together."
 
That's the latest jive coming out of NFL PR headquarters. Somehow, with a few owners stepping down out of their sky-high offices to join hands with their players on the field, and with players holding hands as well, and with this rich imagery piped into homes on network television, America is supposed to feel united.
 
About what?
 
Ahem...unclear.
 
United around Colin Kaepernick? That seems to be passe now---or at least the NFL wants us to think so. No, now it's all about oatmeal Obama-type "togetherness"---generalized vapid fluff.
 
What's next? A pre-game dance number featuring players and owners and fans and soldiers and cops and commercial sponsors at the 50-yard line, kneeling before a statue of Bono?
 
Last week, in keeping with the new unity theme, networks decided not to show angry fans booing and yelling in the stands, when players knelt and joined hands during the National Anthem. Mustn't sow discord. Mustn't annoy the sponsors.
 
"Let's all pretend we're One."
 
The fans are okay with the players kneeling, the players are okay with the fans being okay, the NFL is okay with everyone being okay, and poof; problem solved. It's a marshmallow world.
 
Now start the football game, boys. Go out on the field and hit somebody!
 
Of course, some of the pre-game and halftime "patriotism" you've seen at NFL games---patriotism which, presumably, the kneeling players believe is hiding dark truths about America---has been paid for by the US Department of Defense. Yes, that's right.
 
So NFL teams have been raking in money for these government "ads." They're not genuine patriotism. They're a series of commercials.
 
If NFL teams claim they're proud to honor our soldiers, for example, you could translate the statement thusly: "Honor in this case is very much like Budweiser and Ford sponsorship."
 
During a US Senate investigation of Department of Defense paid ads covering 2011-2014, Senators Jeff Flake and John McCain issued the following:
 
"...DOD paid for patriotic tributes at professional football, baseball, basketball, hockey, and soccer games. These paid tributes included on-field color guard, enlistment and reenlistment ceremonies, performances of the national anthem, full-field flag details, ceremonial first pitches͕ and puck drops. The National Guard paid teams for the 'opportunity' to sponsor military appreciation nights and to recognize its birthday. It paid the Buffalo Bills to sponsor its Salute to the Service game. DOD even paid teams for the 'opportunity' to perform surprise welcome home promotions for troops returning from deployments and to recognize wounded warriors. While well intentioned, we wonder just how many of these displays included a disclaimer that these events were in fact sponsored by the DOD at taxpayer expense. Even with that disclosure, it is hard to understand how a team accepting taxpayer funds to sponsor a military appreciation game, or to recognize wounded warriors or returning troops, can be construed as anything other than paid patriotism."
 
As an aside, I wonder how NFL teams would respond, if a person with deep pockets wanted to pay for a halftime on-field panorama depicting the unnecessary and massively life-destroying wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
 
The NFL is all for unity, if you can pay for it and your content passes muster.
 
This whole business is a twisted mess. "We, the NFL, are happy our teams have taken the Pentagon's money to stage patriotic commercials on the field. Now, if the players object to any part of that, directly or by implication, we're sorry. In fact, we stand with the players and we stand for paid patriotism. How? By saying we do. It's easy. We refer the matter to our PR departments, and they cook up the messages. For this awkward situation, we settled on Unity. That's always a good one. A significant percentage of the gullible will buy it. We're all about the money. Whatever works. We hope things will cool off by the weekend. We've huddled with the networks, and if all goes well, they won't show angry fans in the stands. They'll show smiling fans joining hands to express their solidarity with the players joining hands. Unity. Yes. It's a simple theme for simpletons."
 
Amen.
 
Peace be with you.

Are YOU being extorted? Know your words; know your status under the law.

Understanding your legal Status under the law (U.S. Code) is imperative for citizens who wish to understand their place within the heieratchy of man's artifice and positive law; where rights are NOT a good thing. "Rights" (as defined by Black's Law and Bouvier's - is a state of licensure where citizens are legally allowed to access their inalienable birth rights as the government and the law see fit). In other words, the natural liberated man standing under the Natiral Law (the foundation of man's law) has no need of the services, allowances and duties of statute. 

To better understand what the term of art "Equal Rights" means according the legal definitions provided by the federal govt. regarding its own code and statues, absorb the following and critically analyze whether or not you still feel that a "Right" is a good thing:
________________________________________________

What is EXACTION?







The wrongful act of an officer or other person in compelling payment of a fee or reward for his services, under color of his official authority, where no payment Is due. Between “extortion” and “exaction” there is this difference: that in the former case the officer extorts more than his due, when something is due to him; in the latter, he exacts what is not his due, when there is nothing due to him. Co. Litt. 368.
Law Dictionary:  What is EXACTION? definition of EXACTION (Black's Law Dictionary) 

________________________________________________
United States Code, 2011 Edition
Title 42 - THE PUBLIC HEALTH AND WELFARE

CHAPTER 21 - CIVIL RIGHTS

SUBCHAPTER I—GENERALLY


§1981. Equal rights under the law

(a) Statement of equal rights

All persons within the jurisdiction of the United States shall have the same right in every State and Territory to make and enforce contracts, to sue, be parties, give evidence, and to the full and equal benefit of all laws and proceedings for the security of persons and property as is enjoyed by white citizens, and shall be subject to like punishment, pains, penalties, taxes, licenses, and  exactions of every kind, and to no other.

_______________________________________________


Should we be proud and eager to boast about our RIGHT; our EQUAL RIGHTS,  to be extorted (robbed) equally with every other
 person who wishes to be CITIZEN? 

Is a CITIZEN a good thing to he? 

When did you choose to become a CITIZEN and join the membership to become a legal fiction and franchise of government? 

These are questions worth investigating for anyone who desires to know himself and his true status under the legal statutes of U.S. Code or the legal system of the society.

In all honesty, one stands no chance of achieving status, wealth or actual legal freedom or appropriate remedies under the law without such knowledge. 

To sail a CITIZENSHIP without good knowledge of the choppy confused waters of the legal system that owns the title is to CONSENT to INJURE one's self by assuming the benefits AND DUTIES of the legal PERSON; thus, vouching for, taking legal responsibility for a fictional corporate entity (PERSON); “He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it: and he that hateth suretiship is sure.” -Proverbs‬ ‭11:15‬ ‭KJB

Total Solar Eclipse 2017 Guide and Map (Farmer's Almanac)

WHERE, WHEN, AND HOW TO WATCH THE TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE OF 2017

by Bob Berman

Prepare for the total solar eclipse of 2017—the first to appear over the mainland United States in nearly 40 years—with our viewing guide and eclipse path that shows the path of totality across the country.

WHAT IS A SOLAR ECLIPSE?

To the naked eye, the sky is an inverted bowl hosting thousands of glowing points and two disks. The points—stars and planets—exhibit no size because of their immense distance from Earth. The two disks are the Sun and Moon. By amazing coincidence, these disks appear exactly the same size. Why?

The Sun is 400 times larger than the Moon but also 400 times farther from Earth than the Moon. These facts allow the Moon to fit perfectly over the Sun's face to create a total eclipse. Yet, it's not so big that it blocks out the Sun's dramatic hot-pink corona or atmosphere and not so small that it leaves the Sun's blinding gas surface (photosphere) uncovered. This bizarre alignment does not hold for any other planet and will not last forever: The Moon is spiraling away from Earth like a skyrocket and gradually increasing its separation.

The perfect lineup of these two disks (Sun and Moon) to form a total solar eclipse does not happen often—just once every 360 years, on average, for any one point on Earth. (This is one reason why relatively few people have ever seen one.) The U.S.mainland is currently experiencing its longest totality drought in history. The last total solar eclipse occurred on February 26, 1979, over northwestern states and south central Canada.

This cycle of paucity finally ends with this year's total solar eclipse, taking place on August 21, 2017.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE?

For sheer visceral impact, a total solar eclipse is not even remotely comparable to a lunar eclipse, a partial solar eclipse, or even major auroral displays. A solar totality stands alone. If you are in the right place, it creates darkness in daytime along a 140-mile-wide ribbon of Earth. The brightest stars come out in midday but not as you might presume: During totality, they appear in seasonal reverse. In summer, the winter constellations emerge; during a winter solar totality, summer's stars appear.

And that's not all.

An uncommon mind-set takes over people when the Sun, Moon, and your spot on Earth form a perfectly straight line in space. Many observers shout and babble. Some weep. Afterward, everyone proclaims it to be the greatest spectacle they have ever beheld. Beyond that, many are speechless. (Animals also exhibit odd behavior, such as falling strangely silent.)

The experience surpasses all expectations and imaginings:

  • The eye sees the transition of the Moon over the Sun differently from photographs; because of under- or overexposure, a camera lens can not capture the same range of brightness as human vision.
  • The delicate tendrils of the Sun's corona splay into the surrounding sky in a manner wholly different from the way they appear in photos.
  • During the 10 minutes before and after totality, when the Sun is more than 80 percent eclipsed and its light arrives only from its edge, or limb, earthly colors turn richer and more saturated, while shadows become stark and oddly crisp—as if a different type of star is illuminating Earth.
  • As the Moon slides over the Sun, not only is light blocked in the ribbon of space, but solar heat is, too. The steady drop in temperature usually results in a haunting eclipse wind.
  • At 1 minute before and after totality, all white and light-color ground surfaces underfoot (sidewalks, sand, the like) suddenly exhibit shimmering shadow bands everywhere. (Think of black lines on the bottom of a swimming pool that appear to wiggle.) This eerie phenomenon can make your hair stand on end, yet it can not be captured on film. (Try it!) Recent research suggests that shadow bands are the edges of atmospheric temperature cells (air pockets) made visible by the remaining tiny point of Sun. Their motion catches the eye despite their extremely low contrast.

To witness these extraordinary phenomena, you need to be in totality's path (see map, below). This year, you can drive into it and watch from a roadside! Totality lasts longest—over 2 minutes—within the centerline of the ribbon. A partial eclipse will be visible outside of that ribbon, but the phenomena described above will not occur there.

Healthy. Cures. "The Reality of Plant Based Nutrition"

Healthy.  Cures. 

"The Reality of Plant Based Nutrition"



Published on Jul 9, 2017

What has happened to us? Despite the most advanced medical technology in the world, we are sicker than ever by nearly every measure. Two out of every three of us are overweight. Cases of diabetes are exploding, especially amongst our younger population. About half of us are taking at least one prescription drug. Major medical operations have become routine, helping to drive health care costs to astronomical levels. Heart disease, cancer and stroke are the country’s three leading causes of death, even though billions are spent each year to “battle” these very conditions. Millions suffer from a host of other degenerative diseases. Could it be there’s a single solution to all of these problems? A solution so comprehensive, but so straightforward, that it’s mind-boggling that more of us haven’t taken it seriously? Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering yet under-appreciated researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. Dr. Campbell, a nutritional scientist at Cornell University, was concerned in the late 1960’s with producing “high quality” animal protein to bring to the poor and malnourished areas of the third world. While in the Philippines, he made a life-changing discovery: the country’s wealthier children, who were consuming relatively high amounts of animal-based foods, were much more likely to get liver cancer. Dr. Esselstyn, a top surgeon and head of the Breast Cancer Task Force at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic, found that many of the diseases he routinely treated were virtually unknown in parts of the world where animal-based foods were rarely consumed. These discoveries inspired Campbell and Esselstyn, who didn’t know each other yet, to conduct several groundbreaking studies. One of them took place in China and is still among the most comprehensive health-related investigations ever undertaken. Their research led them to a startling conclusion: degenerative diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even several forms of cancer, could almost always be prevented—and in many cases reversed—by adopting a whole-food, plant-based diet. Despite the profound implications of their findings, their work has remained relatively unknown to the public. The filmmakers travel with Drs. Campbell and Esselstyn on their separate but similar paths, from their childhood farms where they both produced “nature’s perfect food”; to China and Cleveland, where they explored ideas that challenged the established thinking and shook their own core beliefs. The idea of food as medicine is put to the test. Throughout the film, cameras follow “reality patients” who have chronic conditions from heart disease to diabetes. Doctors teach these patients how to adopt a whole-food, plant-based diet as the primary approach to treat their ailments—while the challenges and triumphs of their journeys are revealed. Forks Over Knives utilizes state of the art 3-D graphics and rare archival footage. The film features leading experts on health, examines the question “why we don’t know,” and tackles the issue of diet and disease in a way that will have people talking for years." https://www.forksoverknives.com/synop...

Empathy: Key to Effective Action

Shared from: CharlesEisenstein.net

by Charles Eisenstein (February 2017)

When we hear calls for empathy in politics, sometimes we think that this comes at the expense of effective action, or that it means letting racism, oppression, etc. slide. In this video Charles explains how it is actually quite the opposite -- how conditioned responses of fighting lock us into futile replays of the same old program. And, how empathy allows us to act from what is real, rather than from our projections about what the "other" us, opening a new domain of creative and effective response.

Ten Basic Forms of Fake News Used by Major Media

Ten basic forms of fake news used by major media « Jon Rappoport's Blog
Ten basic forms of fake news used by major media
by Jon Rappoport  shared from  NoMoreFakeNews.com
June 28, 2017

The basic purpose of these ten forms: the presentation of a false picture of reality.
You could find more forms, or divide these ten into sub-categories.
The ten basic forms are:
* Direct lying about matters of fact. (This sometimes includes doubling down on lies already told, or telling a bigger lie after the first one.)
* Leaving out vital information.
* Limited hangout. (This is an admission of a crime or a mistake, which only partially reveals the whole truth. The idea is that by admitting a fraction of what really happened and burying the biggest revelations, people will be satisfied and go away, and the story will never be covered again.)
* Shutting down the truth after publishing it—includes failing to follow up and investigate a story more deeply.
* Not connecting dots between important pieces of data.
* Censoring the truth, wherever it is found (or calling it "fake news").
* Using biased "experts" to present slanted or false "facts."
* Repeating a false story many times—this includes the echo-chamber effect, in which a number of outlets "bounce" the false story among themselves.
* Claiming a reasonable and true consensus exists, when it doesn't, when there are many important dissenters, who are shut out from offering their analysis.
* Employing a panoply of effects (reputation of the media outlet, voice quality of the anchor, acting skills, dry mechanical language, studio lighting, overlay of electronic transmissions, etc.) to create an impression of elevated authority which is beyond challenge.
These are all traditional forms and methods.
Here's an example of a big story that deployed all ten forms of fake news: the Swine Flu pandemic of 2009.
In the spring of 2009, the World Health Organization (elevated authority whose pronouncements are beyond challenge) announced that Swine Flu was a level-6 pandemic—its highest category of "danger." In fact, there were only 20 confirmed cases at the time (direct lying about "danger"). And W.H.O. quietly changed the definition of "level-6" so widespread death and damage were no longer required (another aspect of direct lying).
The story was, of course, picked up by major media outlets all over the world (echo chamber effect, fake consensus, never connected dots re W.H.O. lies), and quite soon, Swine Flu case numbers rose into the thousands (direct lying, as we'll soon see).
Medical experts were brought in to bolster the claims of danger (biased experts; important dissenters never given space to comment).
In the early fall of 2009, Sharyl Attkisson, then a star investigative reporter for CBS News, published a story on the CBS News website. She indicated that the CDC had secretly stopped counting the number of Swine Flu cases in America. No other major news outlet reported this fact (omitting vital information).
Attkisson discovered the reason the CDC had stopped counting: the overwhelming number of blood samples taken from the most likely Swine Flu patients were coming back from labs with: no trace of Swine Flu or any other kind of flu. Therefore, a gigantic hoax was revealed. The pandemic was a dud, a fake.
Despite Attkisson's efforts, CBS never followed up on her story (shutting down the truth after exposing it). Never probed the lying by the CDC (failure to connect dots). In a sense, CBS turned Attkisson's story into a limited hangout—a further investigation would have uncovered acres of criminal behavior by both the CDC and the World Health Organization, to say nothing of the governments and media outlets that supported these lying agencies. The mainstream press essentially censored Attkisson's revelations.
Then, about three weeks after CBS published Attkisson's story, WebMD published a piece in which the CDC claimed that its own (lying) estimate of 10,000 or so cases of Swine Flu in the US was a gross understatement. Truly, there were 22 MILLION cases of Swine Flu in the US (doubling-down on lying).
And that was that.
And these mainstream sources are currently shouting and bloviating about independent media spreading fake news. I guess you could call that number 11: accusing their opponents of committing the crimes they are, in fact, committing.

Which completely screwed up healthcare bill do you want?

by Jon Rappoport  shared from: www.NoMoreFakeNews.Com
July 4, 2017

You can have Obamacare. Or you can take the current Republican re-do. Have you read it? Do you know exactly what's in it? Of course not.
I can tell you this. Every possible healthcare bill has the same flaw. It's called death. I'll explain in a moment.
But first I want to mention that, for the past decade, as a working reporter, I've taken many actions to put a piece of medical information in front of mainstream news media, and they won't bite. No matter what. I've published the information, backed it up seven ways from Sunday, and it doesn't matter. No dice.
Here it is. Again. Every year, like clockwork, the US medical system kills 225,000 people. That's a mainstream conclusion. A conservative conclusion. By extrapolation, that means the US medical system kills 2.25 MILLION people per decade.
Therefore, any new law that places more Americans inside the medical system through insurance plans will increase those death numbers. The death numbers will rise to new heights.
Where does the 225,000 death figure come from? A review in the July 26, 2000, Journal of the American Medical Association, titled: "Is US Health really the Best in the World?" The author was Dr. Barbara Starfield, a revered public health expert at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health.
When I interviewed her in 2009, not long before her death, I asked whether the federal government was doing anything to comprehensively fix the medical horror show, and whether any official from the government had approached her to consult on that fix. To both questions, she emphatically answered: "NO."
In her Journal review, Starfield broke down the ongoing medical tragedy this way: annually, 106,000 Americans die from the effects of correctly prescribed, FDA approved, medicines. 119,000 Americans die as a result of mistreatment and errors in hospitals.
Again, it doesn't matter what kind of national health insurance plan you prefer. As long as it puts more Americans under the umbrella of the medical system, the death figures will rise.
Starfield was not the only person to blow the whistle. I'll give you two more examples.
Consider this article, "The Epidemic of Sickness and Death from Prescription Drugs." The author is Donald Light, who teaches at Rowan University, and is the 2013 recipient of ASA's [American Sociological Association's] Distinguished Career Award for the Practice of Sociology. Light is a founding fellow of the Center for Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania. In 2013, he was a fellow at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard. He is a Lokey Visiting Professor at Stanford University.
Donald Light: "Epidemiologically, appropriately prescribed, prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death, tied with stroke at about 2,460 deaths each week in the United States. About 330,000 patients die each year from prescription drugs in the United States and Europe. They [the drugs] cause an epidemic of about 20 times more hospitalizations [than the deaths: 6.6 million hospitalizations annually], as well as falls, road accidents, and [annually] about 80 million medically minor problems such as pains, discomforts, and dysfunctions that hobble productivity or the ability to care for others. Deaths and adverse effects from overmedication, errors, and self-medication would increase these figures." (ASA publication, "Footnotes," November 2014)
One more. The journal citation is: BMJ June 7, 2012 (BMJ 2012:344:e3989), "Anticoagulants cause the most serious adverse events, finds US analysis." Author, Jeanne Lenzer.
Lenzer refers to a report by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices: "It calculated that in 2011 prescription drugs were associated with two to four million people in the US experiencing 'serious, disabling, or fatal injuries, including 128,000 deaths.'"
The report called this "one of the most significant perils to humans resulting from human activity."
And here is the final dagger. The report was compiled by outside researchers who went into the FDA's own database of "serious adverse [medical-drug] events."
Therefore, to say the FDA isn't aware of this finding would be absurd. The FDA knows. The FDA knows and it isn't saying anything about it, because THE FDA CERTIFIES, AS SAFE AND EFFECTIVE, ALL THE DRUGS THAT ARE ROUTINELY MAIMING AND KILLING AMERICANS.
What I'm pointing out in this article is an ongoing devastation that sits at the bottom of any conventional health plan.
All discussions about which national insurance scheme is right for you ignores that devastation.
